With a predominantly software-based architecture, the P.I. Works uSON solution enhances scalability, reduces deployment time, and contains costs through automated actions
LONDON, March 21, 2019 /CNW/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global network management and capacity planning market, Frost & Sullivan recognises P.I. Works with the 2019 Global Price/Performance Value Leadership Award for its network automation platform uSON—a comprehensive solution engineered for mobile operators. The uSON platform is uniquely built on a micro-service architecture of segregated core components that communicate in the background. Embedded with powerful data analytics and machine learning capabilities, uSON enables operators to plan, operate, and optimise network infrastructure, ultimately translating into cost savings and quality improvements.
"uSON is scalable and lightweight and it can be deployed much faster than competing solutions. The platform's built-in machine learning capabilities allow operators to explore rich network and customer data so that mobile operators can make informed decisions regarding capacity optimisation, management, and expansion," said Rohan Thomas, Industry Analyst. "uSON can recommend investment type for capacity planning actions, such as carrier upgrades, hardware expansions, license upgrades/downgrades, and cell additions/removals."
uSON's predictive analytics can be extended to both short- and long-term network management and planning use cases. While short-term actions prepare end users for sudden fluctuations in network resource allocation, long-term actions provide operators with an understanding of potential investment areas and resource allocation. They do this by augmenting the information extracted from customer and network data sources and cross referencing it with the planning data.
"P.I. Works is recognised globally as an independent, unbiased solution provider in the network automation domain, extending support to its customer base of mostly Tier I to Tier III mobile operators," noted Rohan. "By automating and optimising load sharing and throughput across cell clusters, while reducing bottlenecks across the network, P.I. Works' uSON platform delivers exceptional price-value performance to mobile operators worldwide."
Başar Akpınar, P.I. Works CEO & Co-founder, said, "We are proud to be honoured by Frost & Sullivan as the leader in Automated Network Management and Capacity Planning.
